Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is difficult to give this place a fair rating as it is closed to the public and some parts are fenced off with temporary fencing.Due to the Cyclone is is still waiting for repairs.It looks fine from the outside but would have loved to have seen inside it.A lot of places in Northampton are in the same boat.Beautiful building

Really worth stopping to look at. The stone work is incredible especially for the time it was built.

Our Lady in Ara Coeli and the Convent Chapel were just next to each other. Normally, the Convent Chapel would be opened but due to damage from Cyclone Seroja it was not accessible.

We did not attempt to try and enter Our Lady in Ara Coeli as there was a barrier around the side. On checking the website, it looks as though it is only open on school days and we were there during the school holidays.

We just had to be content to admire the beautiful architecture from the outside. It was designed by Monsignor John Cyril Hawes who also designed St Francis Xavier Cathedral in Geraldton and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Mullewa. There is bountiful information on Hawes in the Monsignor Hawes Heritage Centre next to the St Francis Xavier Cathedral and whilst in Geraldton, a visit here is a must. You will be further awed with stories of his life and his many abilities and talents.

This Northampton church is reputed to be the monsignor's finest work with Gothic character and Arts & Craft motives and romantic characteristics. It dates to 1936 with construction from local stone donated by a Mrs. Williams of Willow Gully. There is a circular turret and Dutch gables at each end. Green tiles are seldom seen but the roof and turret are clad in green tiles, these are reputed to be the originals. The interior showcases the truss structure supporting the ceiling and roof. The church is heritage listed.

One of a number of churches built by Monsignor Hawes in Western Australia. This along with the church building in Geraldton are two of the best and showcase very different architectural designs.
An interesting contrast to the church building in Geraldton and quite beautiful in a more simplistic way especially compared to Geraldton.
Well worth the short visit as you drive through Northampton to both see the building and learn a little more about the history or this area.
